    I need some input on a couple of things..

    First..what is the best program/android app to storage my pictures? I have so many pictures on my phone, but it's filling my memory card up. I want something to where if I'm home on the laptop I can get to those pics or if I'm on my smartphone I can pull it up that way and show/send it to someone, but it's not taking up so much of my memory card space.

    Second thing, I want to store some music basically the same way.. I'm guessing Amazon MP3 or Google Music unless there is a better one? I have some music that I've had for awhile and I think someone downloaded it and I got it on a cd too, in that case is it legal to have that stored on a site where I didn't buy it?

    Dropbox is pretty good, I've used it for a while. Otherwise I would just put most of the pics on your laptop and then just keep a few recent ones on you phone.

    I'm not sure about your music though, I BELIEVE you can save music on Dropbox

    Titanium Backup! I think you may need root access for this tho. Backed up everything including apps.

    Root is basically the same as jailbreaking for an iPhone. You get complete access to all root files and directories.

    Root your phone. I'm sure you have heard of Jailbreaking iPods/iPhones, its the same thing but for Android. It lets you install custom ROMs(operating Systems) and let you have more control over your phone overall.
    No problem, I definitely recommend it!


    EDIT: I was beat to it :p

    Thanks! If I try this rooting I'll probably need help! I got my smartphone this past Nov/Dec and now I don't know how I made it all this time without it.. I mean really.. I've learned alot about it, but I guess I'm still learning

    Maybe being on here I can keep up with things.. LOL!

    lol, check out androidcentral.com, everything you need to know is there under the forum part.

    I would not recommend rooting unless you know exactly what you are doing, and that you are willing to take the risks and consequences. Not trying to change your mind or anything, but you have to know what you are doing and what you want.

    Rooting can be a very big thing.

    The root world is a whole different world, and its pretty cool :cool:
